Default 1973 BMW 630 CS (1:43 scale)

I haven't been here in a while but thought you might find this project I'm doing with my 8 year old interesting.

For Christmas my boys gave me this Heller 1:43 scale BMW 630cs.


I'm having my 8 yr old help me. He's already painted all the interior and engine parts as well as the chassis. He glued up most those parts as well.

I decided I wanted to make something more like this:


First I widened the tires by 2x and removed the side body trim:


Here's the start of the rear fenders:






Then finishing them off, still need to finish up the wheel arches:








And here showing the widened tires on the axles in relation to the body, as well as sitting on the interior/chassis. I'll probably leave the interior as original but add a roll bar of some sort.


Tires need to be filled in. The white is just a spacer to get the two halves the right distance apart.
Next up, front fenders then the rear deck lid wing.


Thinking of painting it like this:
White body with the tri color stripes from driver front corner to passenger rear.
